This is the best free garden planner out there for new gardeners! It will take you through each step of starting your garden, including choosing the right crops, drawing a garden layout map, and scheduling out when your plants should go into the garden.
Will your garden be informal, formal, rectilinear or geometric? Look to the architecture of your house as inspiration or maybe you are drawn to a particular garden style. Structure can also evolve from a theme. - Gardening Is Life
